Origins of OER

I found this interview about the origins of Open Education Resources (OER) fascinating. Prepared in honor of 2012 Open Education Week, QFI interviewed two of the movement’s main pioneers: Lisa Petrides, Founder of Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education, and Marshall “Mike” Smith, Public Policy expert and professor. Lisa and Mike are not only leaders in the field, but they are also members of QFI’s Education Technology and Innovation Program Advisory Group. In this video, we hear about the beginnings of open education, the role that QFI can play in this field, how they both became involved in this movement, and what is the education philosophy that drives their participation in open education.
